    A well-crafted financial performance representation (FPR) is one of the most powerful tools at a franchisor’s disposal for recruiting new franchisees and growing its system. At the same time, financial representations (both in and outside of the FDD) can be an area of significant potential risk. In this seminar, we will delve into the legal requirements and best practices for crafting and using FPRs, and we will discuss the pros and cons of different types of FPRs that franchisors can make.
